On Saturday, President Donald Trump’s main counsel, Rudy Giuliani, proclaimed triumphantly that the president is “INNOCENT” of any offense following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russia.
The lawyer who led us from beginning to end deserves the most credit @JaySekulow , no better lawyer in America. Jane and Marty Raskin are unsung heroes, both great lawyers. And John Dowd’s strategy gave us the basis to let truth prevail. Most important our client is INNOCENT.

Giuliani was promptly mocked in numerous tweets for his misplaced victory lap.
What is it this morning? Tequila shots?

Some people ridiculed Giuliani’s congratulation of the other lawyers:
Pretty sure Mueller is a better lawyer, Rudy. Read the report, mkay! #MuellerReport

Was he the lawyer who engaged in unethical behavior, according to the Mueller report? Or was that you?

C’mon Rudy, give all the other lawyers who were arrested or quit along the way a little credit.

Others pointed out to Giuliani that Mueller’s report did not, in fact, affirm Trump’s innocence, and that other investigations are still ongoing.
That word ISN’T listed anywhere in the 400page #MuellerReport. LIAR.

No, he is not “innocent” he has obstructed justice, Mueller laid out a road map for congress, he told people to lie. He will pay, as will you.

And at least one person asked Rudy what happened to the “counter-report” that Giuliani previously announced would be released by his team to rebut the Mueller report:
Where is the counter report??
